Odwalla To Move Distribution Out of Berkeley




    Juice and smoothie maker Odwalla is planning to move its distribution center out of Berkeley to San Leandro, reports Berkeleyside.com.

    The company, which is currently based in Half Moon Bay, says they found a warehouse with cheaper rent.

    “There are massive amounts of vacant space in San Leandro, Hayward, and Fremont and warehouse rents have plummeted as a result,” said Dave Fogerty, a project coordinator in Berkeley's Office of Economic Development. “We worked with the property owner starting months ago to keep Odwalla here, but at a certain point it was clear nothing could be done.”
